What is... a shtuka?

Talk by Dr. Maxim Mornev

Date: 09.11.21  Time: 16.30 - 17.30  Room:

In the literature there are many seemingly incompatible definitions of a shtuka. I will explain the unifying idea which stands behind them. I will also discuss applications of shtukas to Langlands program and to the theory of Galois representations.
